WHO'S PATTY MURRAY???

My good friend Brandy brought me back into politics after a rough week of being away.  Thanks Brandy for the jolt of java LOL...Seems a certain Senator in Washington has mis-stated about Alabamians.  "I have stood on the line in Everett, Wash., where we have thousands of workers who go to work every day to build these planes. I would challenge anybody to tell me that they've stood on a line in Alabama and seen anybody building anything."  YES...you heard her right...we don't build anything LOL...

Well, I DO know several friends and family who work in automotives places who BUILD "things".  I had a good friend in north Alabama work at Honda.  I have a great friend, Brandy, who works in Chilton County, and a son in law who works for Hundai.  All are "building" things.  Well, I'm glad to see that several of my favorite bloggers have stood up for the state of Alabama, and voiced their opinions.  I would have sooner, had I not had my head in the sand LOL.  Brandy (Fair Justice), Kristopher (The World Around You); LeftinAlabama; and others...voiced their opinions, and rightly so.  Here is a link to the Seattle Weekly showing  our blogger's comments..

Now, can someone please enlighten Patty that, "Yes, Virginia, there is an Alabama".

Go after her, Deb... That comment was uncalled for. Unfortunately, that's what alot of people think about Alabama, Mississippi and Tennessee.

Hope she apologizes...
Hugs,
Betsy

lol Betsy...I'm trying to be back ....how have you been? I think highly of all the states in the United States. Good people in each and every state. HARD working, genuine people. So many that go unnoticed. That woman should really apologize. I hope it was just a slip of the tongue, but I doubt it. Sometimes, senators and congress members forget the little people...

You can’t fix stupid. Stupid is as stupid does. Maybe Patty should just put on her tennis shoes and spend more time in the gym and less time talking to reporters.
